About the Film

Misrepresented, maligned and misunderstood, the great white shark is an iconic predator: the creature we love to fear. Get closer than ever to the “king of the ocean” in this giant screen adventure and discover why this animal is not the menacing villain many believe it to be.

Travel around the world to great white hotspots: the crystal clear waters of Mexico’s legendary Guadalupe Island, newly-discovered shark territory off the coast of New Zealand, the bone-chilling waters of South Africa’s “flying” great whites, and finally to the heavily populated beaches of Los Angeles.

Meet the people whose lives and work have become inextricably linked to the great white: Mike Rutzen, South African shark expert, who swims with great whites in the aptly named Shark Alley; Chris Lowe, who has been tagging juvenile great whites off the coast of Los Angeles and discovering more and more of their secret life; and record-breaking freedivers, Frederic Buyle and William Winram, who tag Great Whites by simply holding their breath and freediving with the sharks.
